I was sitting in a quiet space this morning meditating. Feelings of joy and contentment gradually flowed through me. I was misty eyed, realizing how grateful I am for everything that happened to me. I thanked God for everything in my life.
I have noticed that I cry more (out of joy and empathy) than I ever did as a male. Being a transgender woman, I have become the real person that I'm supposed to be. I'm not afraid to show these emotions which is something new to me. I realized how many people actually love me. I wept even more at this thought. I thought about all the people who have been in my life and how they have shaped me to become the person that I am today. For that, I'm truly grateful.
